Gone with the Wind

Our stay at Two Winds Cabin was truly magical. The home itself is set atop rolling hills and valleys and comes with a sense of peace and serenity that is hard to find nowadays.

The cabin is stunning from floor to ceiling. It has beautiful fixtures throughout that give it that country cabin vibe, yet while somehow still feeling very luxurious.

Our weekend was spent drinking coffee, enjoying the outside setting and soaking in the views the property has to offer. Hiking and swimming at the local waterfalls, as well as visiting nearby Byron Bay. tAt the end of the day, and we found ourself drinking wine around the fire pit gazing at the clearest display of the milky way we have ever witnessed.

The Two Winds Cabin is a fantastic getaway with beautiful amenities and plenty of nearby outdoor activities.

Things We Did

  • Waterfall
  • Farm
  • Food & Drink
  • Walk
Killen Falls
This fantastic waterfall was only a short drive from the cabin (~20mins). We made sure we got up early, so we could increase our chances of having the place to ourself. Thankfully we did. A short 10-minute walk from the carpark to the base of the waterfall. When we arrived, the light was pouring through the trees, and the entire area was engulfed by the sound of birds chirping. We had a amazing morning swimming, taking photos and quietly sitting and enjoying the surrounds....
The Farm
We'd been told that The Farm at Byron was a must-see, so we decided to check it out on our last day before we drove home. We were both so glad we did! The place is beautiful and has so much to do and see.

The Farm’s fields are home to heritage-breed pigs, heritage Scottish Highland cattle and chickens, all of which roam freely and are used for meat and eggs in the on-site restaurant, cafe and produce store.

We had brunch in the Three Blue Ducks restaurant and then strolled around the farm afterwards patting all the animals. A must-do for animal lovers, as well as food fanatics.

Breakfast of Champions
We knew we were going to do the Cape Byron hike, so early morning sustenance was top priority for us. Thankfully we stumbled across Byron Fresh just back from the main beach. Initially it was all their fresh bread and flowers that they had on display out the front of the cafe that lured us in. Once we were inside we knew it was the real deal, as their fit-out was on point. Thankfully their breakfast and coffee was too! A must see/ do if you love a good breakfast/ brunch in a trendy setting....
Byron Lighthouse
After breakfast in Byron, we decided to check out the lighthouse, as it's a pretty iconic location in this part of the world. Fun fact, it's the most easterly point on the Australian Mainland ;-)

Once we finally got a car park on Lighthouse Road, we soaked in the views from the lighthouse but also continued down the Cape Byron Walking Track. This path takes you all the way down to the ocean if you follow it once it turns into Little Wategos Track. I highly recommend you take the extra effort and bring your beach gear as a reward at the end of the hike. I also recommend you bring spare camera batteries (unlike me), as this area is stunning.
